Canada's best Blues guitarist Colin James hits the road
Blues rocker Colin James knows a thing or two about reinventing yourself. He first burst onto the music scene as a rock guitarist in the late 80's, going on to record as pop vocalist before turning his hand to Big Band Swing with the Little Big Band. His distinctive, gravel-toned vocals are equally at home on his driving blues anthems as they are on his country-tinged folk material.
James has earned the reputation as one of Canada's, if not the world's, finest guitarists and his skill and high-energy style of playing set the tone for every show. While he's at his virtuosic best on up-tempo rock outs, the guitar maestro isn't afraid to slow things down and get soulful. With such a diverse catalogue and level of musicianship, an evening with Colin James is one well spent.
